Mikael decided chiropractic was his future after suffering a severe back injury. He graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in 1997 and immediately started working with professional athletes, including the Danish National Football team.

Sports Chiropractic demonstrated the potential

Working with such an array of professional athletes made Mikael realise that chiropractic doesn’t simply relieve pain and restore nerve function, it is also an incredible catalyst that allows the body to express its true potential once the spine is free from nerve interference.

The last decade has seen Mikael’s career focus on the general public, especially postural improvements and the effect of gait/foot mechanics on spinal function. Mikael truly loves his profession and when asked what he would do if he had not become a chiropractor, says “I would be a chiropractor.”

Education is key to community health

Mikael gives regular health talks to companies, schools, sports clubs and special interest groups throughout London, in addition to his weekly Posture and Health talks at the clinic. “I find” he says, “that education is the most important part of my job as a chiropractor. We are creating so many health problems for ourselves, many of which can be prevented or at least partly prevented by a slight change in lifestyle.”

Mikael is often complimented for his bedside manner, which he explains is a result from working weekends for two years in his youth as a nurse at an old peoples’ home in Denmark. Today, Mikael continues to travel the world attending seminars given by leading chiropractic researchers and practitioners.

Mikael lives by the motto that the best doctor of chiropractic knows what to do, how to do it and why to do it.
